Posh atmosphere. Lobster tail excellent, the rest pretty average. Craftmanship good, but old school, lacked inspiration. Wine pairing disappointing.

Bristol is an amazing city and always a great time out - but sometimes you want a calm grown up sophisticated meal and Wilks more than delivers. You feel special when you go there and you get very special food, beautifully presented and very professionally...More

They are a popular restaurant. We went at a weekend and booking was essential. You might be lucky during the week but I wouldn't chance it myself!
